Chris, thanks for that explanation. I had some of those facts down, but never knew the whole story of the Seismic/Turner Green/Black connection. Just to clarify. The needlenose under discussion is NOT a Seismic/Turner. Those date from the early 90s. The cores I refered to were shaped by Bobby for (...

Tim, I didn't know Bobby built anything in the mid-1990s. I know he built some Blackbirds for Gilmour around 1991 or so, but anything between then and 2000 would surprise me. I'm not arguing with CBara, but I'd think your board might be closer to 5 or 6 years old rather than 9 or 10. Then again, BT...

This idea of "skateboarding is a lifestyle" is bunk. Sure when you are about 18 it seems cool to pretend you live a skateboard lifestyle but people grow up, or they should. Street skating is less of a sport now-a-days and more of an art form. The level of technically ability that a good street skate...

0.1 cone penalty, no DQ. Over 100 cones 0.1 could add up quickly, especially at the end (last 30 cones).

I agree with jack. Limited the the push to say 20' (2 huge, 3 good pushes or 4 little pushes for msot people) is a good thing.

I think a record should be for the following
-100 cones with 20' push start, flat
-100 cones with a ramp flat + hill (FCR ramp?)
-100 cones on a hill (defined pitch?)

Vlad - I'm in for this one. Looks fun! Lets run it at one of the DC winter outlaw races. I don't think the P&R will hold 100 cones but maybe you guys have another spot.

Most of have ever run was 85 cones 6'OC (ran out of room), 100 should be interesting.

I bitch an moan about ramps more than anyone. But I gotta agree with Jani. The FCR ramps are about as good as they get. They are not so intimidating after a few pulls off of them. If anything the entire transition of the FCR ramps could be extended 1-2 feet making the "drop" smoother, but that is be...

The "hill" in downtown morro is fairly flat, the surface is iffy, but the venue is AMAZING (we must of had 800+ spectators in an out that day). A high/hard wheel like the flashback was t...
